626. Repetitive Strain Injuries with Deborah Quilter

Feb 3, 2023


Join Lara for a fascinating and informative conversation about Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) with, pioneer in the field, Deborah Quilter. Deborah is an ergonomics expert, a certified Feldenkrais practitioner, a yoga therapist, and the founder of the Balance Project at the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. She hosts a YouTube Channel to raise awareness about RSI and give viewers reliable information and coping strategies.

In this episode, you’ll learn about: 

  • what is a repetitive strain injury.
  • the importance of good posture in avoiding these types of injuries. 
  • advice on how you can set up your workstation to help prevent repetitive strain injury.
  • some exercises to do if you already are feeling some of the symptoms.
